Tornabuoni announces new location in Paris
After three years, the avenue Matignon building has been restored and Tornabuoni Art will return to its historic space in October.

PARIS.- Tornabuoni Art announced a return to its historic Parisian space at 16 Avenue Matignon in October 2020.

Tornabuoni Art opened its first Paris gallery in 2009 in the same location, in the heart of the 8th arrondissement, within walking distance from the Grand Palais and the Champs Elysées in a district that is becoming ever more of a center for cultural and art market activity. In 2017, when this building required renovations, the gallery moved to the Passage de Retz, a 17th-century townhouse in the Marais. This expanded space provided an opportunity for Tornabuoni Art, a specialist in Italian avant-garde art, to reach out to new audiences, as well as to stage widely acclaimed, large-scale exhibitions of artists including Alighiero Boetti, Giorgio de Chirico and Alberto Burri, among others.

After three years, the avenue Matignon building has been restored and Tornabuoni Art will return to its historic space in October, in a completely renewed and expanded gallery spreading over three floors and around 300 square meters (3229 ft2).

The renovation was carried out by Studio Archea, a celebrated Italian architecture firm that has designed, among other projects, the Liling world ceramic Art City in China, the Albania national stadium as well as the Cantina Antinori in Tuscany. Archea’s designs solidify Tornabuoni’s vision of bringing the Italian avant-garde to a broad international audience.

Francesca Piccolboni, Director, comments: «We chose to launch our Parisian gallery in the 8th arrondissement 10 years ago, and we would still choose it today. This district’s cultural atmosphere is becoming ever-more dynamic and international, particularly thanks to the arrival of major contemporary art galleries which have joined the surrounding historic art galleries and major auction houses. For us, this neighbourhood is a growing cultural hub. We are delighted that Studio Archea has helped us to bring our vision and ideas to life for this space, with a shared sensitivity both to the art and to the way we experience it.”

The inaugural exhibition, which will open during Paris’ FIAC art fair in October 2020, will be dedicated to Italian Minimalism, with works by Lucio Fontana, Enrico Castellani, Alighiero Boetti, Dadamaino, Francesco lo Savio and Piero Manzoni, amongst others.

Tornabuoni Art will also collaborate on the first institutional exhibition of Paolo Scheggi since his participation at the Fifth Paris Biennale of Young Artists at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris in 1967. This exhibition, opening on October 1st, is organized by the Italian Cultural Institute of Paris in the prestigious location of the Hôtel de Galliffet, in collaboration with the Association Paolo Scheggi and Tornabuoni Art.
